History, Theory and Culture of Architecture and the Built Environment

Grounded in contemporary critical approaches to the history and theory of architecture and allied disciplines, including Landscape architecture, urban design and planning, SABE takes a distinctive cultural approach in its on-going research in this area.

Recent projects, grants and publications represent a spectrum of expertise and focus ranging from the construction of multi-cultural space and society in the settlement history of Australia, to the culture and poetics of construction, and cosmology in Islamic architecture. Incorporated under this research concentration is the School's distinctive and long-established expertise in the cross-cultural interpretation of architecture, urbanism, and cultural landscape undertaken within the Centre for Asian and Middle-Eastern Architecture (CAMEA).
